5 tonne Cummins V16-K50 for South Pacific

Torquepower has recently delivered on the successful overhaul of a 5 tonne Cummins V16-K50, a 50 litre engine for one of our key export partners.

Overhaul of an engine of this size is outside of the materials handling capability of the Torquepower Service Department so delivery of the work became a collaboration between Torquepower and a longstanding partner in DEAS Pty Ltd.

DEAS is a heavy engine overhaul and dyno-testing facility whose primary focus is Detroit Diesel products, however, the company has successfully completed a great many overhauls of other larger engines including Cummins, Cat and MTU in its purpose-built facility at Salisbury, Brisbane.

DEAS welcomed the opportunity to work with Torquepower on this project. The completed engine was dyno-tested in the final customer’s presence and a video of the testing and test results were provided for his records.

With its huge range of Cummins spare parts and its ability to interpret, source and resource all of the necessary products for the work, it made good sense for Torquepower to work with another like-minded professional service provider to deliver the solution for the customer. The overhauled engine will be returned to its home in the South Pacific where it will be reinstated at a mine site to provide prime power for the enterprise.

Lee Fishing on surviving Covid – connections and positives

When Covid closed all the restaurants in 2020, it hurt the fishing industry.

All the big companies called and cancelled their orders, and Peter Lee of @Lee Fishing Company brought his fleet home and tied up for 6 weeks. “ It may not have been the best decision, but fuel is a huge cost to deep-sea fishermen. The water is 300 to 600 feet deep in places, and usually, we are about 50 miles offshore. The usual tour is a 35-night stint, with an initial 30 hours of travel, which means using up to 40,000 litres in 3 weeks.”

North of Cairns is the “mothership”, a 50-metre Sea Swift, with a million-litre diesel tank. It provides refuelling of all kinds including food and water for the crew.

“Torquepower rebuilt two KTA Cummins Engines for us. Excellent engines, and being out at sea, they need to be ! You can’t pull up at a marina out there for repairs. “

We overhaul them every 30,000 hours regardless. All the filters and parts come from Torquepower. We have a special connection with Torquepower. I can call anytime for help. Even when I need non-Cummins marine parts, Torquepower can source them for me quickly.

So what are the positives? – “ Well the Queensland Coast got a breather, as fishing totally closed down. Now the ocean is producing really well. A lot of product and lots of demand. I just can’t get enough to supply to Australian and Asian markets. After Covid, I downsized the fleet, got really efficient, and don’t personally go to sea anymore, but I still miss it. “

The Family that works together…

Since 2004 Torquepower has enjoyed a strong relationship with Progress Heavy Vehicles.  Adrian and Annette O’Donnell are the new owners, but are well known to each other, with an interlinked history. PHVR was formerly owned and operated by Peter Morgan – Workshop Foreman at Torquepower, and Adrian worked at Boral for 26  years with Peter Morgan.

“We look after everyday areas, like greasing right through to major trailer services. I’ve got a variety of good guys here with a diverse skill sets particularly with Cummins engines, they have good knowledge and Cummins experience.”

“My father taught me straight up what I didn’t want to do in life. He was a panel beater, and it was my job to help him after school. That definitely steered me away from panel-beating. He pointed out that there was a lot of trucks on the road and someone needed to look after them. “

When I came across this business, I knew it had a good history and reputation, and it suited me and my family to return to the diesel industry.  Annette has skills in accounting and administration, and our two boys are diesel mechanics. “

“I believe the Family that works together, stays together. We also like to play around with motor racing, which has taken us all-over Australia. The boys are Junior champions and now they are working their way up to the senior categories. Casey our youngest son won the 2020 Wingless QLD Title which was a huge achievement amongst a field of 35 cars and became the youngest QLD Champion in history with this win. We love Speedway racing. The family gets right into it. Everyone has an important role, enjoys it and we get some good results. It’s pretty handy to have a family of mechanics, plus of course Dad does the panels. “

“Torquepower  looks after our Cummins Parts supply, everything from gaskets to water pumps  and so on. Torquepower have a great availability of –  parts any issues we work together to get the customer back on the road sooner. “

Paul Duce, Torquepower sales manager “ The best way we can support Progress, is with on-time parts supply, the right parts every time; and tech support. It’s all about getting the customer back on the road in a timely manner . “

Valvoline Premium Blue

While studying the possible healing powers of crude oil, the American physician Dr Ellis was disappointed to find no real medicinal value, but was intrigued by its potential lubricating properties. The oil he developed in 1866 worked effectively in high temperatures and was especially suitable to lubricate the large steam engines of that time.

He abandoned the practice of medicine and founded the Continuous Oil Refining Company, which later became known as Valvoline. Today, Valvoline is a world leading independent lubricant specialist with 150 years of experience under it’s belt.

The technology behind Premium Blue engine oils was developed in partnership with Cummins Inc., the world’s largest producer of commercial diesel engines.

Torquepower is proud to stock, supply and use Valvoline Premium Blue oils.
